Brannigan fixed 'em over in the Eleventh?

Hi, while reading a book I encountered a phrase about which I have no clue to understand. It is from 'Social Triangle' - a short novel by O Henry. What I don't understand is this - "Brannigan fixed 'em over in the Eleventh." It seems to have some background but I don't know. Please help.

"The crowd surged around Billy McMahan again. Some one was telling how Brannigan fixed 'em over in the Eleventh. Ikey leaned against the bar a while, and then went out."

Sounds like the patrons were tellings stories about a boxing match which included a boxer named Brannigan who won his bout in the 11th round.
